1. Photon-Number-Resolved Detection of Photon-Subtracted Thermal Light
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Yanhua Zhai, Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Adriana Eleni Lita, Brice Robert Calkins, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We examine the photon statistics of photon-subtracted thermal light using photonnumberresolving detection. We show the photon-number distribution transforms from a Bose-Einstein distribution to a Poisson distribution as the number of ...

2. Demonstrating a High Symmetric Single-Photon Heralding Efficiency in Spontaneous Parametric Downconversion
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Marcelo Pereira, Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Jingyun Fan, Sae Woo Nam, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We demonstrate a symmetric, single-spatial mode, single-photon heralding efficiency of 84% for a type-II spontaneous parametric downconversion process. This achievement of high efficiency, single-spatial mode collection is key to enabling many quantu ...

3. Improving the performance of bright quantum dot single photon sources using temporal filtering via amplitude modulation
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/7/2013
Authors: Serkan Ates, Imad (Imad) Agha, Angelo Gulinatti, Ivan Rech, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan

4. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

5. Manipulating the Color and Shape of Single Photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Michael G. Raymer, Kartik A Srinivasan

6. Two-photon interference using background-free quantum frequency conversion of single photons emitted by an InAs quantum dot
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/4/2012
Authors: Serkan Ates, Imad (Imad) Agha, Angelo Gulinatti, Ivan Rech, Matthew T. Rakher, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan

7. Low-noise chip-based frequency conversion by four-wave-mixing Bragg scattering in SiNx waveguides
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/15/2012
Authors: Imad (Imad) Agha, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Bryce Thurston, Kartik A Srinivasan

8. Continuous-variable quantum compressed sensing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Yi-Kai Liu, Matthias Ohliger, Vincent Nesme, David Gross, Jens Eisert
Abstract: We introduce a novel method to faithfully reconstruct unknown quantum states that are approximately low-rank, using only a few measurement settings. The method is general enough to allow for measurements from a continuous family, and is also appl ...

9. Effect of Losses on the Performance of an SU(1,1) Interferometer
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/4/2012
Authors: Alberto Manuel Marino, Neil V. (Neil Vladimir) Corzo Trejo, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We study the effect of losses on the phase sensitivity of the SU(1,1) interferometer for different configurations. We find that this type of interferometer is robust against losses that result from an inefficient detection system. This type of loss o ...

10. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We investigate a strategy for M-ary discrimination of nonorthogonal phase states with error rates below the homodyne limit. This strategy uses feed forward to update a reference field and Signal nulling for the state discriminati ...
